What You Can Do

One of the best things you can do is to simply enjoy the outdoors – take advantage of public parks, trails, and forests. The Howard County Recreation and Parks website has lots of information about fun and family friendly locations and amenities.

Help­ing your com­mu­nity stay green is as easy as recy­cling, using less elec­tric­ity and conserv­ing water. If you are inter­ested in learn­ing more or help­ing us go fur­ther, we invite you to join the email list for Live­G­reen­Howard (in the footer of this page) to get the lat­est on envi­ron­men­tal events, announce­ments, and pro­grams in the County. We promise not to flood your inbox or share your email!

Another resource for find­ing envi­ron­men­tal, out­door and other vol­un­teer opportuni­ties with Howard County gov­ern­ment is hocovolunteer.org. LiveGreenHoward uses this site to list avail­able volunteer oppor­tu­ni­ties such as stream cleanups, tree plant­ing and the Rov­ing Radish program.

Beyond County gov­ern­ment, the Vol­un­teer Cen­ter Serv­ing Howard County website is another great resource.

Check out the Local Envi­ron­men­tal Groups page of this website to learn more about what these groups are doing and to find out about their activ­i­ties, events, and vol­un­teer oppor­tu­ni­ties. What­ever your partic­u­lar envi­ron­men­tal interest, there is some­thing for everyone.
